  • 2 cans Salmon* (200 g after drained)

  • 3 Tbsp Plant-based sour cream or favorite sub** (45 g)
  • 2 Tbsp Yellow mustard (30 g)
  • 2 Tbsp Juice from jarred pepperoncinis or pickles (30 g)
  • 1 Tbsp Grainy dijon mustard (15 g)
  • 1 Tbsp Balsamic vinegar, fruit infused for extra YUM (15 g)
  • 1 Tbsp Juice from a lemon (15 g)

*I’m using Chicken of The Sea® canned Salmon which is only 2 fat per 2-oz portion for reference, but feel free to use your favorite salmon (canned or not!)
**I love the Forager Project® plant-based sour cream for a dairy-free “yogurt.” Feel free to swap in nonfat Greek yogurt, light mayo, or sour cream, or full-fat mayo if you want it to be extra delicious!
